Profile: Salem

You can call me… Salem

I identify as… Pansexual Genderqueer

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Female pronouns always.

I’m attracted to… Feminine men, Feminine women, masculine women whom may appear either feminine (more psychologically masculine) or more butch (both psychological and physical).

When people talk about me, I want them to… Just accept me. Understand that although I am different and have “tastes” that they may consider taboo, I’m not an abomination… I’m no more of a “freak” than they are.

I want people to understand… That I want to be able to express myself without being an outcast.

About Salem
I was always a “tomboy” growing up, then started doing all the guy stuff in dresses and make-up. I would get grounded from skirts because I “didn’t sit lady-like.”
If you saw me on the street, you’d just think I’m merely an average girl (in a general sense). Spend a few minutes with me… well, you’d almost think I was a male trapped in a females body. I’m so much more than that even…since middle school I’ve struggled to define myself.
In highschool I’ve had two trans friends, one I talked with everyday and he really got me thinking. I didn’t know the term pansexual a year ago, and I’m relieved that at least I’m not alone, I’m so not alone there’s a term for me.
It seems like even my boyfriend thinks I’m purely joking when I say “I don’t think I’m a chick… I’m a guy or something.”
I’m confused right now, but hopeful.
